Five Memphis FFA Members Receive State Degree

FFA members from across the state met in Columbia, April 14 - 15, to honor fellow members for outstanding achievements, conduct association business, elect new officers and participate in leadership workshops at the 83rd Missouri FFA Convention.

Be Bold, Wear the Blue, Earn the Gold is the theme for this year's annual convention, which attracted more than 9,000 students and guests to the Hearnes Center on the University of Missouri campus.

According to Terry Heiman, state FFA advisor, the state association will present Missouri FFA Degrees to 752 members who, as a result of their agricultural and leadership achievements, have qualified for the state's highest FFA degree. This is the largest number of state degrees ever to be presented by the Missouri FFA. The State Star Farmer, the State Star in Agribusiness and the State Star in Placement also will be named.

This year, the Memphis FFA Chapter raised 5 members to the State FFA Degree due to their hard work, determination and outstanding SAE projects. Those who achieved their State Degree include: Melanie Triplett, daughter of Sharon Triplett, Shelby Westhoff, daughter of Scott and Angela Westhoff, Abby Clatt, daughter of Danette Clatt and the late Deny Clatt, Katie Miller, daughter of Glen and Susan Miller and Zach Anderson, son of Steve and Bobbie Anderson.

The Missouri FFA Association has 25,077 members, the largest-ever Missouri membership. FFA strives to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
